When I was about 12 or so, my mom
made about 50 beanbag nativity sets!
She gave them to family members
for Christmas gifts.
None of my mom's 5 kids got one...
we were little...so what?
Well, my mom died when I was in high school
and I got married 1 1/2 years later.
(several years before anyone else)
In the meantime, my grandpa died.
I received his beanbag nativity set.
(sorry brothers and sisters)
They are basic enough...maybe someday
I'll make a bunch, but it doesn't
look good for a few years.
In the meantime, you can tell that my
set is WELL LOVED!
When my daughter was 2 she loved baby Jesus.
She would play with him like a baby doll.
One day, He went missing.
I searched everywhere and was so
worried he got thrown out!
A few weeks later,
I found him in the pocket of a denim blanket we had.
She must have tucked him in and forgotten.
Ya, well loved.
